Todd Hunter

Todd Hunter
pianist, composer, producer, arranger

From San Diego to Greenwich Village to around the world, Todd Hunter has
delighted audiences and won the regard of his fellow musicians. He grew
up in a musical household with his first and strongest influence - his
father, Bill, whose jazz piano skills propelled him through dental
school and who continued performing throughout his adult life. Midway
through San Diego State University, Hunter took off for New York and
immersed himself in that city's jazz scene. There, he continued to
educate his ears and hone his technique in the company of Ahmad Jamal,
Joe Henderson, Tommy Flanagan and Mel Lewis among others. Eventually he
settled in Southern California where his musical adventures exposed him
to R&B, Salsa, Samba and more. Even his spiritual journey incorporated
the music he loves; for 15 years he was the resident keyboardist at O.C.
Smith's City of Angels church. He's recorded two CDs - "Dig It" and
"Have a Nice Trip" - which are both available at www.toddsounds.com

Hunter tours internationally with the legendary singer Dionne Warwick;
he accompanied her, Natalie Cole and Whitney Houston on their
Soul Divas tour. He's also been a featured performer with the Brian
Setzer Orchestra and has shared the stage with Stevie Wonder, Jeffrey
Osborne, Gladys Knight, Gloria Estefan and Smokey Robinson. But his
passion for jazz endures through opportunities to play alongside Nancy
Wilson, Billy Higgins, Kenny Burrell, Buddy Collette, Les McCann, Diane
Reeves, Ndugu Chancler and Ronny Laws. The Todd Hunter Trio performs
throughout the Southland, including frequent home jam sessions in which
his son William sits in on trumpet, continuing the family musical
tradition into a third generation.

Todd’s newest CD project, "Eat, Drink, Play," is Hunter's first trio album and will reflect his love for traditional jazz piano...with a modern twist.
